You live in suburban atlanta. You don't even live in augusta and that is probably why you don't know your facts. I don't think you have been to augusta. in 15 years probably. If you live in augusta or viist which i know you don't. How many cranes are at augusta mall then now. Anybody who lives in augusta should know this


Here is what you posted earlier at 10:34 pm
Macon, GA the best of Georgia??? Talk about a fairytale. None of the propoganda that MayorofMacon or Johndoeboy posts will convince people that places like Macon and Augusta are growing.. Both cities are losing population.
Macon the best of 2007

After i provided you with the article Georgia Economic Outlook 2008 - News - Augusta, GA (http://www.wjbf.com/midatlantic/jbf/news_index.apx.-content-articles-JBF-2008-01-04-0031.html - broken link). About you being wrong about augusta losing population. Which i have told you several times but you insist to type it even though you are wrong.

Here is what you posted at 12:30 am
yeah there's real growth in Augusta... about 100 ppl in two years for a city with close to 190,000... that kind of growth is just is just amazing!.. Sure the recession won't hit Augusta's economy as hard.. because the economy has been stagnant for 12 years! It doesn't have that far to recede.

Now here is what you posted at 1:15 am
All of this growth you keep hyping is 263 ppl in one year... one tenth of one percent.. hardly a trend.


Augusta was losing population according to you at 10:34. Then at 12:30 am it gained 100 people in 2 years. Then at 1:15 am it gained 263 in one year. Make up your mind which one did it do. In 3 hours you have posted false information twice already.


This is why i used reliable sources instead of listening to nonsense.



Again should i believe the dean of the univ of ga about augusta. Or somebody who is completely wrong everytime.
The dean at UGA sure believes augusta population is growing. He think the city of augusta and metro augusta will do better than the rest of georgia

Joedoeboy posted this same thing over a month ago.. I researched the actual rankings that Forbes and the other sites compiled.. and Augusta did not rank where this local "Embracing the vision" website said it did. Augusta didn't fair badly.. but it was ranked on midway on most of the lists.. around #150 out of 300.. Also, JohnDoeboy fails to mention that on most of these lists.. Atlanta, Savannah, Athens, and Columbus ranks above Augusta... but he portrays it as though Augusta is the top ranking in the state.
Here is the previous discussion with the real numbers included... using the links that Johndoeboy provided.. you will see for yourself they don't match up.
http://www.city-data.com/forum/georg...ml#post2216277
I have no problem with ppl posting positive news stories about their communities.. but Johndoeboy, as usual, distorts the facts..
Augusta was rated 19th out of 150 metropolitan areas by Forbes Magazine as the best in the cost of doing business, which includes price of labor, energy, taxes, and office space. According to wjbf and forbes.
Athens, Savannah, or columbus did not ranked above augusta.

From lydia taylor who actually lives in augusta unlike other people.
Now, I know anyone can point a finger at me and say I am biased, because I live in Augusta, and am a Realtor. But the articles you and I cite above both quote actual DATA, not some randomly picked person with an opinion. In fact, just 3 days after that article was published on wjbf.com, I published this one about the fact that Augusta is the most affordable market in the US.


As you can see the only person distorting facts is you. And you don't live in augusta, but yet you try to act like you know whats going on.

In 2006 and 2007 the city of augusta, richmond county, and metro augusta gained people.


Then you say the article i provided is a dated article. The article i provided is from march 2007. Yet you provide a article from 5-16-06. You say wjbf isn't correct about the list about augusta except for evans. But yet the articles you provide about augusta. Are by the augusta chronicle the same company who owns wjbf.

Augusta / CSRA Gets National Recognition in 2007


Augusta was rated 19th out of 150 metropolitan areas by Forbes Magazine as the best in the cost of doing business, which includes price of labor, energy, taxes, and office space.

In Expansion Magazine, Augusta MSA was ranked 36 out of 362 hottest cities for manufacturing expansions and relocations.

Augusta was chosen among the top ten places in the south with plenty of talented labor.*

Augusta's new Southern Business and Development Corporate Park has been voted one of the top ten New Super Sites in the South.*

Evans, Georgia was voted number 32 of the top 100 places to live in the U.S. by CNN's Money Magazine based on education, environment, housing affordability, taxes, commute times and job market.

Aiken, South Carolina was voted 3rd best small market in the south for business potential and quality of life.*

Martinez, GA
Top 100 rank: 76
Population: 30,900

MONEY Magazine: Best places to live 2007: Georgia


WJBF and Augusta chronicle are owned by the same company.

So when you used it the news source is correct. But when somebody post something you don't like wjbf is wrong.

Augusta sees first growth in years 062907 - The Augusta Chronicle (http://chronicle.augusta.com/stories/062907/met_134042.shtml - broken link) is your article you posted

Embracing the Vision News and Events - Augusta, GA (http://www.wjbf.com/midatlantic/jbf/community/etv/etv_news.html - broken link) is the article i posted.

Both are owned by the same company. But somehow your article is correct right, and mine's is wrong. Get for real, just like how in 3 hours augusta population change three times according to you

Remeber what you posted in less than 3 hours

And you got the nerve to talk about someone posting propoganda. That's all you do on every post you type. Are you mad that the city of Augusta gained 263 people from 2005, to July 1, 2006. The city of augusta and metro augusta has gained people from july 1, 2006 to jan 18, 2008 to just to let you know.

There can be thousands of people in downtown augusta. Alot of new resturants, condos, lofts, and businesses opening on broad st, along the riverwalk, and all of downtown.

Just click on the link under number 71.
Metro’s Best Local Festival

Border Bash
— This annual interspecies battle for dominance pits beast against fowl – or, more specifically, dawgs against ***** – while fundraising for the MCG Children’s Medical Center. More than 10,000 fans of the University of Georgia and the University of South Carolina enjoy friendly rivalry and… not-so-friendly whoopins on the field every year. The event annually raises more than $40,000 to benefit programs and services at the hospital. Visit borderbash.org (broken link).

A Day in the Country — For 22 years, the annual music, arts and crafts festival has highlighted both up-and-comers and headliners in Nashville’s music scene while raising money for the Augusta Sertoma Club & Sertoma Charities. The appeal? Casual, contemporary and, of course, country. It’s also a family affair, with children 6 and under admitted free with adult admission. Visit kicks99.com.

The Greek Festival — This popular free festival has been a cornerstone of cultural awareness in Augusta for decades. The two-day celebration has expanded to four days of Greek music, performing arts, arts and crafts, children’s activities and, of course, Greek food. This year, they’ve even added a drive-thru for convenience at the location of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church at 953 Telfair St. Visit holytrinityaugusta.com.

First Friday — The monthly street party in downtown Augusta is a hit with the locals and residents from around the region who come out for live entertainment, gallery shows, unique shopping and great food in the city’s historic center. Now run by the Greater Augusta Arts Council, the previously troubled festival has a bright future. Visit augustaarts.com or myspace.com/firstfridayaugusta.

Arts in the Heart — The second offering by the Greater Augusta Arts Council to make this list, this festival attracts upwards of 50,000 people a year to downtown Augusta to celebrate the visual, performing and cultural arts. The Young Artists Market and the Literary Village are just two of the more recent additions to this something-for-everyone extravaganza. Visit artsintheheart.com.
